State of the me...

I'm bouncing back from the con. Yesterday was the first day I didn't crash part-way through, and it was a busy day. I also didn't hurt this morning when I got up (although I'm not without hurt, as I found turning back to look into a parking space I was waiting to get into; more of a stretch than I expected).

As for yesterday...

We did a bit of shopping, picking up stuff for our raffle Chinese Auction basket for the PenWAG fashion show. It all started with a set of 8 vintage molded glass faux-cut-crystal champagne flutes my parents sent me, and the idea of doing a '70s inspired hat box. We found a powder-blue white polka-dot tall cylindrical box at The Container Store. We found a floral-pattern Joseph Schmidt truffle assortment and a Scharffen Berger dark bar assortment at the Jos. Schmidt outlet. There's a new paper store at Santana Row, and we got some avocado green tissue paper and this great red poppies on green ground decorative paper. We're going to add a bottle of Thomas Coyne Chardonnay and a bottle of Cedar Mountain Rosé of Pinot Noir (chardonnay and rosé just scream '70s).

Then we hopped up to Berkeley to have coffee with lferion before dropping her at the Oakland airport. We discovered that our GPS maps didn't yet have the new entrance on it, so we were routed on the old detour routes, but that wasn't actually bad.

We got back home in time to load the car for the PenWAG fashion show rehearsal. There was a smidge of hotel drama at the beginning, but we got running and everybody did very well. It was a little work getting the sound up, and we're going to a different solution for the show itself on Saturday, but it was sufficient proof-of-concept and I'm not worried about it now.
